Personal injury law compensates people who are injured by the carelessness acts of others, or who are injured by unsafe or defective products. A personal injury lawsuit can include claims for physical injury, emotional harm, and property damage.
Our firm handles a variety of personal injury claims for clients located in the New York Metropolitan area, including those arising out of auto, trucking, and other motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death, dangerous or defective products, buildings, or other structures, work-related injuries, medical malpractice and slip and fall injuries.
These injuries can be very serious. People who file personal injury claims may be able to recover monetary damages for their pain and suffering, loss of income, permanent disability, or emotional distress. The person held legally responsible for causing the injuries may be required to pay compensatory damages—"actual damages" that cover financial expenses—and at times punitive damages—to punish the offender and deter others from acting in the same way.
Our firm understands that it is important following such an injury to pay medical bills, limit the amount of lost wages, and deal with insurance companies to ensure payment for future injury-related treatment. Our attorneys have the legal expertise and experience to help you build your case and obtain the compensation you deserve in a timely manner. We can also relieve you of the demanding task of communicating with insurance companies and other parties in your case.
